–Hope Edelman, Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss
I’ve been a Motherless Daughter for 14 years and counting…
“Maybe I was more alone than anyone in the whole wide world. Maybe that was okay.”
While I am a motherless daughter and there was SO much in this book I could identify with, when I gave it some thought, this passage seems to be my most significant takeaway:
“As difficult and maddening as the trail could be, there was hardly a day that passed that didn’t offer up some form of what was called trail magic…the unexpected and sweet happenings that stand out in stark relief to the challenges of the trail…”
The passage stuck with me because I am an eternal optimist. I don’t have bad days, only less than stellar moments. Every day there are good things happening and it is those moments I choose to focus on…these moments of joy can be called by many names, trail magic fits.
